Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 26, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, May 26, 1886 Cold and windy with rich, fine skies. We have had a fire in the sitting room all day and I built a coal fire in my fathers room. I went over to the cemetery this morning and dug over the ground on the graves and set out morning-glories on all except my mothers and Gertrudes on which the Phlox seems to be promising. I worked all forenoon and in the afternoon read. I sprinkled the rose bushes and the guilder rose with a decoction of H[?] for the aphis[sic] which infests them.
